Mike Tysonhas done a lot of incredibly crazy things during his life. Too many to count really. But one of our favorite Tyson moments was the time he told Lennox Lewis that he wanted to eat his kids.

"I want to eat his heart," he barked during a post-fight interview after beating Lou Savarese in 2000. "I want to eat his children."

It was…nuts. To say the least. But as it turns out, Lewis wasn't all that offended by what Tyson said. Instead, it sounds like Lewis actually started to use Tyson's words to warn his kids about what would happen to them if they misbehaved. Because you know, what other motivation do you need when you know that Mike Tyson will EAT YOU if you get out of line?

Obviously, Lewis is kidding. We think. But who would have predicted that Tyson would be snapping a photo with Lewis' son and wife one day after watching the insane video above?!
